@  Goldenheart : (12 September 2017 - 06:30 PM) So... interesting thing happened. We got a new apartment, looked up the local internet providers, dialed Comcast's phone number, and got a message saying the call couldn't be completed as dialed. My wife tried the # on her phone. Same message. We're thinking it's very odd such a big company can't get its own phone number right. We call a 3rd time using an app that acts like a phone. Got right through. It seems AT&T doesn't like its customers dialing Comcast.  :crazy:
@  Brandino : (13 September 2017 - 12:14 AM) I'm finding Destiny 2 as more of an expansion then a true sequel.  It's fun and they fixed a lot of mistakes from the first.
@  SpaceInsomniac : (13 September 2017 - 10:11 AM) Glad to hear Destiny on PS4 is now working for you d2.  You should join LeadBetter and me sometime.
@  SpaceInsomniac : (13 September 2017 - 02:24 PM) And I'm guessing you already have a clan in mind for PS4 Destiny, but if not, you're welcome to join ours.  So far it's myself, LeadBetter, and a group of people that I played a lot of Titanfall 2 with.
@  d2_s : (14 September 2017 - 04:34 PM) @Space cheers. I'm with the same clan I was in the original Destiny. We should play, I wouldn't mind doing the nightfall and rat king quest with you guys if you haven't done them already. Haven't had a chance  to play much this week, but should be ok this weekend.
@  d2_s : (14 September 2017 - 04:35 PM) Happy to raid with you guys too if condtions permit.
@  Goldenheart : (16 September 2017 - 09:16 PM) So... odd thing happened. We got a new apartment in Philly. I tried to call Comcast to ask about their internet & got a message that my call couldn't be completed as dialed. My wife tried & got the same message. I thought it odd such a big company couldn't get their own ph# right. Then, we dialed using an app that acted like a phone. We got right through. Seems AT&T doesn't like their customers dialing comcast.
@  Goldenheart : (16 September 2017 - 09:17 PM) & then I tried calling to end internet service at the old house & the computer hung up on me! A week later, I made it back to the old house & found the modem dead! No lights, nothing.
@  Goldenheart : (16 September 2017 - 09:17 PM) old house has AT&T internet & AT&T modem.
@  KaliniuS : (17 September 2017 - 04:14 PM) It's time for my semi-annual check-in at HDTV Arcade lol
@  KaliniuS : (17 September 2017 - 04:17 PM) I've been helping beta test the Steam version of Killer Instinct lately. Speaking of KI, I'm actually going to a tournament on September 30th here in Raleigh, NC. It's called "The Fall Classic." Wish me luck!
@  ermac666 : (20 September 2017 - 06:00 AM) Speaking of fighting games, marvel vs capcom: infinite is out for ps4/pro, XB1 and PC. It plays great with more modes than SFV at launch. I am still getting used to the gem system.
@  ermac666 : (20 September 2017 - 06:02 AM) The only downside is that future dlc characters are behind a pay wall, and there are no x-men characters as 20th century fox now owns the x-men licence from what I understand.
@  TonyDP : (25 September 2017 - 07:43 PM) Marvel has really marginalized the X-Man, and Fantastic Four as well, pretty much removing them from the larger universe, most likely as part of some long game to reclaim those IPs from Fox, who owns them basically in perpetuity as long as they make a movie every few years.
@  Goldenheart : (25 September 2017 - 09:57 PM) Good luck Kal! Kick some Killer butt!
@  Brandino : (30 September 2017 - 12:03 AM) Destiny 2 is fun .... but man it's so easy to get the good loot
@  ermac666 : (02 October 2017 - 09:02 AM) Nioh is coming to steam on nov 7. It was a PS4 exclusive and one of my fave games this gen.
@  d2_s : (02 October 2017 - 04:10 PM) Somy is releasing an updated PSVR headset with improved processing unit and HDR pass-through. Unfortunately, no HDR pass-through solution for early adopters and the new processing box is no compatible with the original PSVR unit. A dick move if you ask me. I'd use my PSVR alot more if it wasn for this.
@  Brandino : (17 October 2017 - 02:27 AM) Just wanted to post that I'm still alive lol...
@  Goldenheart : (21 October 2017 - 01:36 PM) sorry for the double post earlier. Didn't realize it.

Admin, d2, everyone else: should we have an official Discord server?

I recently starting using Discord, and I was wondering if Admin or d2 would be interested in creating a Discord sever?  Anyone can start a server--and it's completely free along with the app itself--but I'd prefer the Admin or d2 started the server, so it could be an official aspect of this community.

I don't really use the voice over IP features, but Discord is great for instant messaging in a group.  If things get a little too active with your phone notifications, you can also set it to only send notifications when someone sends you a reply, or makes a post that mentions you directly.  And you can link your Steam account and such, to see what people are playing on PC.

While this would likely lead to the forums being visited even less, it might make the overall community more active, and help keep what remains of our group.  With Destiny 2 and loads of other multiplayer games right around the corner, I think it would be nice to have a way of joining up with other long-time forum members in this community.  For those not interested in multiplayer, just think of it as an extension of the shoutbox on your phone.

https://discordapp.com

So what does everyone else think?  Good idea or bad idea?  Why or why not?

I have been using discord for quite a while too.  I would say it is worth setting up.  It does not take long at all.

Yeah, discord is honestly pretty amazing IMO. I set up a server for my twitch/youtube community and the ease/speed of setting up an organized community is great, and the features for sharing/communicating/interacting are nice.
